One of the fringe benefits of being a published author is that one occasionally gets an invite out.

I’ve dusted off my frock for the Gold Coast Literati on 28 and 29 May, and am starting to salivate over the smorgasbord of authorial delights on offer.

First up is the Friday night literary feast – ”a unique chance for an intimate conversation with the Literati –  some of Australia’s most talented and successful authors.’  A three course meal, hot and cold running authors at each table, and Sirromet wines – what’s not to love?

The next day is jam-packed with free author encounters at  the Robina Community Centre. I’ll be there with Belinda Jeffrey talking about our paths to publication in Getting started and breaking through.

The day features a star-studded program that includes international, award-winning, best-selling and critically acclaimed authors including Michael Robotham, Garry Disher, Steven Amsterdam, Marion Halligan, Karen Brooks, John Danalis, Alice Pung, Shane Maloney, Richard Newsome, Matthew Condon, Katherine Howell – I could go on, but there are so many more, you might be better off clicking here for the full program.

Bouquets to Gold Coast Libraries for running the event. Click here for book coasters, a series of light-hearted interviews with many of the featured writers.

    It sounds awesome. I’d say you’ll fit right in, dusted frock or otherwise. Good luck with your session.

    Thanks Lee, it’ll be fun with Belinda, and I’m really looking forward to catching as many of the other authors’ sessions as I can fit in. 🙂
